    I have cories and my substrate is 100% fluorite, and their barbels are all in fine shape. They spend a lot of time scavenging for food in the substrate and no worse for wear. I think the danger is...

    Thanks :)
    They are looking a bit better, but the cloudiness is still visible. Hard to say if that's due to the meds or not.
    Here's a link to someone else who had the exact same symptoms on their...

    Thanks for the replies. It definitely looks a lot like Costia - I hadn't heard of that one before. It appears to be treated in a similar manner so I'll stay the course for now (formalin/malachite...

    Does this Angel have velvet?

    This Angel's skin looks like it has a blotchy smokey veil over it. The fish is in QT with one other Angel, which looks similar, and a bunch of Cardinal tetras, none of which show any similar signs. ...

    Thanks everyone :) Appreciate the replies. I love drip systems. If I had a "fish room" I'd be all over that. Alas, my tank is nowhere near plumbing. I haven't measured the impact of the coral in...

    Yeah, my water's pH swings dramatically downwards from 8.5 to 7 after coming out of the tap due to having zero KH. I have a teaspoon of crushed coral in my HOB to help buffer it. (My tank hovers at...

    Water aging / pump-to-tank system

    I'm wondering about saving the back-ache of hoisting buckets and having instead, a single large plastic container with a utility pump. When it was time for a water change, you'd merely run the hose...

    After a couple of weeks using heat treatment, I've decided to try something else. Though the ich had reduced in quantity, there were still several fish with quite a few spots. I believe the...

    Yes, my spray bar is raised, and I added a 2nd pump and air stone in addition to the existing sponge filter bubbler. Did this when I hit about 82 degrees (I did a gradual increase). The whole tank...

    That product does get good reviews. It's based on malachite green and formalin, so its possible effect on plants, snails, and staining things means I'm not rushing to try it. I do already have a...

    It's been at 86 since last Thursday. Just lost another hatchet, who was thoroughly covered in ich. Many other fish still have smaller quantities. I'm not sure if the heat is working or not - not...

    Up to 85 or 86.4, depending on which thermometer I listen to. Got some dissolving pyramid feeders for the weekend, hoping they don't make too bad a mess. Nobody's flashing or visibly stressed but...

    My water is aged in buckets before going in the tank, so it's room temperature. The tank is usually only 8 deg. F. warmer than the room, and at a 25% WC, the delta should only be around 2F. When I...

    pH up/down products are generally a bad idea. On hard water, they may not work at all, because of water's ability to "buffer" the chemicals you're adding. Someone on this forum gave me this link...

    You actually seem to have a pretty good grasp. The trick in fishless cycling is to give the bacteria a "fish waste substitute" to help it grow in the absence of fish. Head over to this link for the...
